Now more than ever our communities are yearning to come together to fight in solidarity against the injustices they are facing. As a Latina woman my heart aches for my community and other marginalized communities who, in the face of oppression, remain strong and are rising above all the hate. This is why 9to5 Colorado's work is so important, 9to5 continues to create opportunities for political and social change for women and their communities!
As a 9to5 intern I am working alongside community organizers to fight for housing justice in the Denver Metro Area. Currently Colorado is in a housing state of emergency. Everyday more and more individuals and families are being displaced or are becoming homeless due to the growing economic inequality and lack of affordable housing in the state. By providing support and resources individuals can become leaders and advocates for rent control, just cause eviction and right of first refusal, all of which are necessary changes communities need to thrive.
For their work towards housing justice, along with paid Family Leave, transit justice and economic security I ask for your support during 9to5's 30K in 5 days fundraiser. Your support will allow 9to5 Colorado to continue ensuring victories for women of color and marginalized communities. My personal goal is to raise $300 for 9to5 Colorado and any support I can receive from you is greatly appreciated and valued!
